Working freelance means that I don’t always get a weekend off, in fact most weekends I can be found working away. This does however mean that I can take days off when I want to and that’s exactly what I did on Monday. I definitely needed to take a break away from the laptop and emails, sometimes it’s just so hard to switch off. Therefore I definitely needed a trip to my happy place.
I absolutely love London Zoo, probably because I just love animals so much and the fact I don’t have a pet, this lets me get close to them and I don’t think I have ever got over the fact I am standing in front of a gorilla. It was a gorgeous sunny day on Monday too, so Danny came with me and we had a fantastic day out at the Zoo. I especially loved the new ‘In With The Lemurs’ where you can get up and close next to them, weirdly we got greeted by all of them calling for about 3 minutes, which was spectacularly weird. There are plenty new baby animals too, it was amazing to see the young gorilla clinging to its mum and also to see how big Jeff the sloth had got, it was his first birthday on Monday too. I also visited the butterfly tent which I hadn’t before, they really take centre stage in the photos.
I hope you enjoy the photo diary and my happy place, as much as I do.
